SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Less than 48 hours after scoring a career-high 19 points against Binghamton, Zach Auguste bested that mark by scoring 20 on Sunday to help Notre Dame blow past Navy, 92-53 at Purcell Pavilion.
The Irish (2-0) used a 10-3 run nine minutes into the second half to open up a comfortable 19-point lead after an Auguste dunk, and a 19-2 burst late in the game to turn it into a rout.
Jerian Grant added 17 points and 10 assists for Notre Dame.
Brandon Venturini scored 11 points for Navy, which threw a scare into No. 18 Michigan State at home Friday night in a tight 64-59 loss. The Midshipmen (0-2) couldn't muster the same magic against the Irish, committing 20 turnovers and shooting just 23 percent in the second half.
